Looking for more info on my GGG Grandfather, William Stollar. I know he was born in 1841, was in the 140th Pennsylvania during the Civil War, and was married to Naomi Ashbrook. I also know the family lived in the East Finlay Township area of Washington County, PA. Would like to find names of parents, siblings.

Forgot to ask: was your William Stollar in the Civil War? The reason I ask is that I'm descended from a John Stollar, son of William Stollar, who stayed in the Washington, PA area.

My John Stollar stayed in the Washington county, PA area all his life. He married Etha Ealy around the turn of the century. One of his children was Hazel, my great-grandmother. All my information comes from a paper an aunt did for a school project, during which she interviewed Grandma. (I can't interview Grandma myself, as she died in 1993). According to the paper, John's father was named William Stollar, born 8-13-1841. He married Naomi Ashbrook. He was a member of the 140th Pennsylvania during the Civil War, and was wounded during the battle of Spottsylvania. His father was also William Stollar, and this William was known as "Old Billy" during his later years. This William was married three times, and, as I understand it, buried all three wives. I think that my William may be a brother to your John, but am not sure. Ifany of this information sounds familar, let me know, as I would like to confirm the information I have from my Grandma. And thank you!

Here's what I've got on your William: His parents were Henry Stollar and Jemima Nickerson. Henry had 4 brothers and 4 sisters. His brother William is my 3rd g.grandfather. Their parents were Andrew Stollar and Rosanna Ealy. I have info on each of Andrew and Rosanna's children and on the Ealy branch. In fact quite alot of info. I can easily photocopy my files and mail them to you if you'd like. Henry was married 3 times and had a total of 10 children. You can e-mail me at My family has restricted my use of the computer to fr/sa/su . They think I'm on it far to much, so that's why i didn't get back to you sooner. Let me know if I can be of any futher help. Gretchen

I would love some more info on Peter Earnest who married Roseanne Stollar, such as parents,siblings etc.

Peter Henry, William, Daniel, Roseanne(who married Peter Earnest), Christina(who married an Isaac Earnest, would like to know if those 2 men are related), Catherine Mary. In 1818 Andrew Stollar with his family, came to Washington County, locating about two(2) miles south of Washington(?). Then they moved to East Finley Township, where they settled in a partially cleared wilderness, about half a mile north of what was later the East Finley Post Office. Mr. Stollar died in 1847. As for Roseanne Stollar Earnest, I don't know when she died but at the date of her death she had 87 grandchildren, 233 great grandchildren, 29 great great grandchildren making a total of 348 in all. Three of her sons seven of her grandsons were in the Union Army during the Civil War. All returned but for 1 grandson Isaac Riggs(Son of oldest child Susanna James Riggs) who was killed while charging a battery near Frederickburg. I hope I have been of some help. I can be reached at:
